Cape Bank Summer Food Drive Helps Stock JFS Pantry Shelves

Posted:
MARGATE – Cape Bank hosted its Fourth Annual Summer Food Drive to collect essential, non-perishable food items for the Jewish Family Service Food Pantry.
The Kick-Off was held on June 19th with a day-long collection at Casel’s Marketplace in Margate and continued throughout the summer with drop-off locations at various Cape Bank branches in Atlantic County. The collection brought in dozens of bags full of essentials for the pantry which helped local families supplement their meals during the summer months.
As a supporter of JFS for six years and a Visionary Donor of the agency, Cape Bank not only hosts the Summer Food Drive each year, but also supports agency events and initiatives throughout the year to help JFS meet the needs of the community.
“Through partners like JFS, the Cape Bank Charitable Foundation has developed a variety of ways to give back to the community,” said Chick Pinto, Cape Bank’s Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer and a Board Member of the Cape Bank Charitable Foundation. “Once again this summer, our Cape Cares Employee Volunteers and Atlantic County branches have worked hand-in-hand with JFS to collect essential non-perishables for families and children throughout the area. With so many people in the region still facing economic struggles, we believe our efforts this summer were more important than ever.”
